Cooking Notes

This recipe uses cornstarch to stabilize the eggs. As a result, it prevents the custard from forming lumps as well as thickens it.

It is necessary to cook the custard over medium-low heat to prevent eggs from being cooked and forming lumps. But if it happened, strain the custard through a fine-mesh sieve to eliminate lumps. 

The thickness of custard should be such that it coats the back of the spoon.

You can store custard in the fridge for up to 2 days while it is covered with plastic wrap.

If you want to serve and keep the custard warm for few hours, pour it into an insulated dish.
